Media Converter Eases Path To Gigabit Ethernet

Inexpensive migration to Gigabit Ethernet over both copper and fiber cabling systems is promised with the iMcV-Gigabit, a media converter that extends the distance of Gigabit Ethernet signals from 100m to more than 40 km without the use of fiber switches and routers. The chip utilizes ASIC while adhering to Gigabit Ethernet standards to ensure compatibility. DSP logic in the chip provides a seamless interface between enhanced CAT 5 twisted-pair fiber-optic cabling. In the event of a fiber break, the chip can transmit an alert to any standard SNMP application so that corrective action may be taken. It is a hot-swappable module that installs in the company's iMcV Chassis Series, which are designed for a wide variety of applications. The converter is priced at $1,200 to $5,800 depending upon configuration. The iMcV Chassis Series features a starting price of $220 for the iMcV/1.
